Eden Renewable Innovations Ltd, makers of Thermafleece, have created SupaSoft Insulation, a safe, sustainable, non-itch insulation made with more than 95 per cent recycled polyester fibres (PET) that come from discarded PET bottles. Unlike many other end-uses, recycling PET into insulation takes waste single-use plastics out of circulation for many decades. What’s more, SupaSoft Insulation takes waste and uses it to help reduce our domestic energy consumption. What better way to use waste than to use it to save energy? SupaSoft Insulation is made from nothing more than polyester and contains no added chemicals. Thermal bonding technology ensures that rPET fibres are strongly bonded together and unable to slump over time. This means that SupaSoft Insulation will continue to perform and provide savings for the lifetime of the building. Manufactured in the UK, SupaSoft Insulation is available nationwide. The insulation comes in a compressed roll that is easy and safe to handle and install. Compress packing the insulation greatly reduces packaging waste and carbon miles from factory gate to site. Over one million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and up to 12 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans each year. Insulating an average loft with SupaSoft Insulation would take nearly 10,000 waste plastic bottles out of circulation for many decades.

017684 86285 Mapei launch Mapetherm Flex RP

Mapetherm Flex RP is a ready-mixed, cement-free flexible skimming base coat that is extremely elastic and due to added Bioblock technology, is resistant to the biological attack of mould and algae. Developed by Mapei’s worldwide Research & Development laboratories, Mapetherm Flex RP is excellent for repairing deteriorated insulating systems and/or micro-cracked render to form reinforced skim coats on insulating panels and thermal insulation systems. Thermal insulation systems offer protection from bad weather and help to contain energy losses which can be costly and increase

the levels of CO2 emissions. These systems sometimes require maintenance and, in worst cases, may need to be completely removed and replaced. If the damage deterioration has been identified in time, it’s possible to carry out repairs using technologically suitable product and, if applied by skilled workers, the intervention will be reliable, durable and economically advantageous. Mapetherm Flex RP contains versatile characteristics that have been successfully used to carry out repair and maintenance work that is efficient and has an aesthetically pleasing finish. An innovative use of resin ensures that Mapetherm Flex RP is highly elastic. It also adheres perfectly to insulating panels, old and new render, organic and cementitious skimming compounds, paint and coatings including those deteriorated.
